Warning of Possible Road Works in Ruskin Drive

I have just gone past a gentleman at the corner of Dorchester Road and Ruskin Drive poking an implemented into a small hole in the ground. These I know are to test for gas leaks so, being of a nosey disposition (and having a duty to blog readers), I stopped to ask what is happening.

Apparently there is a gas leak under the road and there is a good chance that they will need to dig up the road at that corner to fix it. He said they are unlikely to put up traffic lights but they may have to restrict access along that part of Ruskin Drive.

Lunchtime Update (Thanks to a blog reader): They are currently digging it up.

Update 3rd May: This is what is looks like now...
